I spent this past weekend in Colorado searching for old schools and photographing the Tubbs Romp to Stomp out Breast Cancer event at the Frisco Nordic Center in Frisco, Colorado (more on that amazing event once I go through all of the images).
The Guy Hill Schoolhouse was built in 1876 – the same year Colorado became a state! It was originally located in Golden Gate Canyon before being relocated to the Clear Creek History Park in downtown Golden, Colorado. Not only did the school provide an education in grades 1 – 8, it also served as a community center for an occasional dance, meetings, and church services. The school was named for Guy Hill, which was named for John C. Guy, an early homesteader in Guy Gulch. The school closed in 1951.
Until the next adventure….
